Funnily enough, I think he's much more fun in multiplayer because you can convince your opponents to bloody each other up a bit. Just convince them they need the card draw, and away they go. That's not political in the ordinary sense, I'll agree.
What do you mean by "redundancy"? All decks should have redundancy. What does Edric have that others don't?
Time walks? The only extra turn card I run in Edric is Notorious Throng which, while a powerful finisher, is conditional. Someone playing lots of extra turns and antisocial cards is a fault with the player, not their general. That's the same type of player who likes to play solitaire with extra-turns Narset, and that's hardly Edric's fault.
I'm sorry, but I fail to see any logic in this argument. Who cares how a fictional race is usually portrayed in fictional stories? How does that relate to the card and the discussion at hand? Sure, it says elf on his creature line, but unless you're playing elfball, that doesn't matter. According to EDHREC, only 5.6% of Edric decks are tribal elf. And again, you are confusing the card itself with the personal playstyle of someone you know.stifle the storm trigger. You can't stifle Priest of Titania when it's tapping for mana.

Your typical Edric deck plays exactly the same in multiplayer as it does in 1v1. Calling Edric "great political card" is just lie. Edric decks have so much redundancy that they always start drawing ton of cards before any other player gets to even play creatures. Edrics also play time walks the most antisocial cards I can think of.
This sounds more like a player thing than a card thing
